With high hopes of uplifting the lives of the rural poor, the genesis of Rehab India Foundation was laid on 17th March, 2008. Our aim was to rehabilitate the marginalised section of Rural India with a better standard of living by the channelling the building rocks of a just society i.e. Education, Health, Economic Development and Environment.
The journey started with the adoption 51 families in a riot hit village in Assam where we started building houses for the people of the village, leading to their complete rehabilitation in May, 2011. With the success of our first Rehab Model Village, we continued further with the adoption of 60 villages in the part of Bihar, West Bengal, Assam, Karnataka, Tamil Nadu, Manipur, Uttar Pradesh and Andhra Pradesh. Today, Rehab runs a full-fledged Village Development Programme that runs for 5 years for the village adopted along with important short-term programmes.
We strive for an India where no one dies of hunger and poverty, where every kid has a dream for future, where everyone is in harmony with nature and where everyone is equal irrespective one’s gender, caste or race.
Our mission is to provide sustainable development to the people living in extreme poverty. To achieve this mission, we engage in long-term development work, build resilience, respond to emergency situations, and seek to address the poor cause of poverty through our development education and advocacy work. Rehab has aligned with United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals 2030 and is gradually moving to achieve them in the direction of quality education, gender equality, clean water and sanitation, zero hunger and decent work and economic growth.
